Titanic Belfast Experience Tour

With your Titanic Belfast & Belfast City Tour ticket you can jump off the bus at a time that suits you best, our busses pick up and drop off every 30-60 minutes so no need to worry about getting back to the city centre if it happens to be raining after the tour!

Enter Titanic Belfast and it’s all aboard for an experience that is, without doubt, something to remember for grandparents, parents and kids alike. Be swept back in time to learn about the thriving industries and exciting design innovations that led to the creation of RMS Titanic and delve into the lives of the everyday working class people who worked tirelessly to build what was once the largest and most luxurious ship ever constructed.

Experience first-hand audio accounts of the metal workers who painstakingly hammered every precision made bolt into the ships hull and learn about the upholstery fitters, wood craftsmen, and engineers who undertook the daunting task of building the Titanic to the highest levels ever seen in that era. Pass through the original Harland & Wolff gates to continue the journey to the Shipyard and the dark ride that uses special effects, animations, and full-scale reconstructions to recreate the reality of shipbuilding in the early 1900s.

A dramatic experience

The pacing of the tour is excellent, there’s not much time to catch your breath as you’re greeted with a panoramic eagle’s eye view of the actual slipways on which both the Titanic and the Olympic once rested. Then it’s all aboard to experience an eclectic range of exhibits, models, interactive databases and elaborate computer-generated imagery which illustrate the ship’s opulent fit-out including exact replicas of the cabins, and journeys through the dining areas, the ship’s engine rooms, working interiors and deck promenade, where visitors can see and hear the oceans and feel the engines rumbling.

Guests then move on to paying tribute to the loss of this magnificent ship and the 1,500 men, women and children who lost their lives on her tragic maiden voyage, experience the aftermath, the inquiries and the sensational news reports of the time. The story is then brought up to the present with the discovery of the wreck and into the future with live links to contemporary undersea exploration. Complete your Titanic Experience with a visit to the world’s last remaining White Star vessel and RMS Titanic’s original tender ship – SS Nomadic. Walk the decks, explore the ship, and take a journey through over 100 years of authentic maritime and social history.
